Cabin Review

Cabin mini suite

this is 20 years type of cabin , the window which open leaks , the drawers dont stay closed , the closets also , in shower room most everything disfonction except the toilet,itself , but toilet paper in a basket ( the maid suppose to take them every day but due to sea condition, no ) there is a lot of old vomit spot , stain, on the " carpet." , the mattress foam has hole in it , the cabin door dont stay open with their system, , more or less same for bathroom door , the showr curtain has only one half......... only one handle in cabin, a tiny one near the shower hose... the bunk are not what you expect on expedition boat - even old- to keep you inside when boat roll or pitch etc
